| It is a very known behavior that the glass fragmentation depends on where you break the glass.
| Thin glass is the product of choice for electronic device displays. This glass is commonly expensive aluminosilicate glass whose properties are significantly enhanced when subjected to chemical tempering.
| Since A.Zoller has proposed the idea of vacuum glass in 1913, vacuum glass technology become more and more mature from the last 100 years.
| In this paper, the basics of the heat flux modes are given, a solution method for the glass energy equation is introduced, and some tempering furnaces are theoretically studied to show the portions of the heat transfer phenomena inside furnaces…
| This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
| In a glass tempering process, residual stresses to glass are made with heat treatment. The process includes heating and cooling, and they should be equal on both sides of the glass pane.
| In this article, the prestressing profile of chemically prestressed glass panes is investigated and two different measurement methods for recording surface compressive stress will be presented.
| In a flat glass laminating oven, glass-film sandwiches are located on rotating rollers and conveyed through a heating chamber in a continuous flow.
| Glass type, coating types and locations, shading patterns and devices... there are multiple factors that can contribute to a thermal stress break.
| Today, when energy efficiency is more important than ever, it’s a good time to speak about insulating glass spacers.
| As a manufacturer and supplier of monolithic, laminated and insulated glass panels, we often produce larger panels that must use heat-treated components, ionoplast interlayers and multi-layer assemblies.
| In the last years contentions about anisotropies among customers and manufacturers occurred when using glass products, such as heat-strengthened (HS) or fully tempered glass (FT).
| Strong, resilient, with perfect thermal and sound insulation properties, insulating glass has been used around the world in applications ranging from family homes to high-scale construction.
| In this paper local heat transfer of impinging small jets on surface heat transfer and residual stresses is studied.
| As a modern society, we’re spending about 90% of our time indoors – at home, in offices or commuting. How is it possible to get access to daylight, when we can’t naturally be outside? By making buildings more transparent.
| As digitalization becomes a strategic discipline in almost all enterprises and industries, the glass processing business is no exception.
| Are you considering adding insulating glass products to your production mix? Or are you thinking of reconfiguring your current equipment to deliver new and better services to your customers?
| The fragment count in the standardized fragmentation test in the standard EN 12150-1 is the way to define the safety level of tempered glass and a way to also get an indication about the stress and strength level of the tempered glass.
| The New Hype in Top End Architecture – an Examination of Latest Product Developments and Projects
| A couple of years ago all started with the first measurement of anisotropies and edge stress as well as the detection of White Haze and other glass imperfections right after the furnace.
